(WP): Dennis (1-0)

In their season-opener, senior Max Abramovich took the mound looking to repeat the record-setting success he had a year prior. With his first start of the season, the Huskies senior right-hander dominated the Olathe East lineup with a heavy reliance on his fastball. In five innings of work, Abramovich struck out seven OEHS batters, before handing the ball to senior Scott Duensing for a two-inning save to move the Huskies to the championship game against Olathe South. There, a big six-run second inning propelled BVNW to a 9-5 victory over the Falcons to open the season at 2-0.

(LP): Dennis (1-1)

During the second start of his season, Abramovich ran into trouble as he was only able to pitch two-plus innings, giving up seven earned runs. The Huskies matchup with the Saints was played on a rain-soaked Aquinas field, and saw multiple players lose their footing during the course of the game. Sophomore Ben Barron replaced senior Josh Fiene as the starting third baseman for the game as Fiene was unable to play due to an eye injury. Senior Will Dennis replaced Abramovich and worked five innings before the Saints defeated the Huskies on a walk-off in the bottom of the eighth inning.

(WP): Duensing (1-0)

After senior pitcher Will Dennis gave up four first inning runs, the Huskies offense responded with a four-run fourth inning to take the lead and earn their third victory of the season. Two-run knocks by senior first baseman Holden Missey and senior catcher Clayton Leathers turned a 4-2 deficit into a 6-4 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning and Scott Duensing closed out the victory for BVNW.

Your record sounds a lot better at 3-1 than 2-2,” Missey said after the game. “I can tell you that.”

(WP): Abramovich (2-0)

Matched up against the No. 1 ranked team by MaxPreps, the No. 2 ranked Huskies came out with some offensive fireworks on the road. Blue Valley Northwest jumped out to an early lead and wound up leading 15-4 behind a 5-RBI day from junior designated hitter Sean Roseborough. In the third inning, Roseborough’s 2-run home run gave the Huskies a 7-1 lead. Abramovich picked up his second win of the season despite the struggles of BVNW relievers Johnny Rubeo and David Kephart.

Despite being ranked No. 2 by MaxPreps, Miller said the win showed who the real No. 1 in Kansas Class 6A was.

“This is no surprise,” Miller said. “We’re first and we’re going to stay here.”

(LP): Abramovich (2-1)

In the roughest start of his season, Abramovich struggled through a 35 pitch third inning. On a late Thursday night in Lawrence, BVNW and Rogers got into multiple verbal altercations in what became a chippy affair. Multiple baserunning mistakes for the Huskies squandered three separate scoring opportunities and dropped the Huskies record to 5-2 on the season.

“It was a very intense game I felt like from both teams,” senior first baseman Holden Missey said. “I think both teams respected each other as far as like both teams knew each other were good. And you know I think it did get a little chippy. I mean it was both ways.”

Through a slight rain, senior Will Dennis pitched a gem of a game against the bats of Jefferson City High School. Dennis went 6 ⅓ innings, allowing four hits and one run. Despite the Huskies senior lefty only striking out three hitters, his ability to pitch to contact and use his pickoff move kept opposing hitters off base throughout the late morning.

(WP): Duensing (3-1)

For the third consecutive year, the Huskies went to Kauffman Stadium and came out the victors, this year with a 6-2 victory over Summit Christian Academy. After falling behind early, the Huskies got all of their offense in a 6-run second inning that highlighted by junior Ryan Freiermuth and sophomore Matt Miller’s 2 RBI’s apiece. Head coach Corby Lange said a day filled with pitching greatness from Dennis and Duensing was a great sign for BVNW.

I thought we bounced back. I thought our pitchers were ahead of the count all day long and our defense was solid,” Lange said. “Today was a great day for us.”

For the 10th game in a row, senior Holden Missey reaches base via a hit, extending his hitting streak for the season. Still, Missey is not the story of the game, rather it’s junior Sean Roseborough’s 4-for-4, home run and 7 RBI’s that lead the Huskies to a blowout win of the rival Mustangs.

Huskies grab win in extras

In a rematch from their 2017 regional final, the Huskies battle it out with the Shawnee Mission Northwest Cougars. Senior Scott Duensing throws 5 ⅔ innings, allowing two runs in his birthday start. In a little bit of a role reversal, it’s senior Max Abramovich who relieves Duensing and earns the win in extra innings as sophomore shortstop Ryan Callahan’s double down the left field line propels BVNW to an eighth inning win.

“I knew I was going to wait and get my pitch,” Callahan said, “and I found my pitch and I squared it up.”

With just three days of rest, Abramovich comes out and dominates his Bishop Miege opponents. A back-and-forth game between the Huskies and Stags finds Roseborough as the hero in the top of the seventh inning when a softly hit fly ball from the Huskies’ designated hitter fell into the right field grass to score pinch-runner Will Dennis. Despite Abramovich claiming he didn’t have all of his stuff in his complete-game outing, Lange says it was the best he had seen all year.

“I thought it was his best outing of the year, hands down.”

“I mean, they were a good team, but I didn’t see anything outstanding as far as pitching goes,” Roseborough said. “If you’re going to give me a fastball, I’m going to try to hit it as hard as I can.”

An early lead for the Jaguars gives the Huskies a minor scare, but a 4-RBI performance from senior first baseman Holden Missey clinches a spot in the regional final for the Huskies. Missey’s offensive display extended his hitting streak to 19 straight games.

After BVW scored on a leadoff double and a single in the top of the first, Missey said he thought the early deficit was a positive for the Huskies.

“I think when they got up 1-0 [in the top of the first inning], and then they got up 2-1 [in the top of the second inning], it just woke us up,” Missey said. “When they scored I was like “Perfect. That forces us to get on the board and start hitting early.’”

Just as the season started for the Huskies, it was Max Abramovich dominating Olathe East hitters and Scott Duensing closing it out to clinch the regional championship for the second consecutive year. Abramovich went 6 ⅓ innings, throwing 100 pitches and striking out eight OEHS hitters en route to the regional final win. The Huskies score their two runs on an error by their opponents and a wild pitch, clawing their way to victory. With the win, Abramovich tied the single-season wins record previously set last year by himself at 7. The win also gave him his 15th career win, most in school history.

With a third place finish last year at the state tournament, Duensing said this year’s squad has unfinished business.

“We’re here to play and we’re going for that championship.”
